having this issue with RX vega 56 and acer xg270HU, changing display color depth does not fix the problem for me. The problem disapears when disabling freesync
ryzen r7 1700
16 gb ram
msi b350 tomahawk artic
RX Vega 56 - 17.8.2 driver
acer XG270HU - DP-connection
Windows 10 pro 1703
I have the same issues. I will get a black screen with Far Cry 4 and Prey with freesync on and not issues with it off and not change with 6 vs 8 color depth. I also have ACer XG270HU, RX Vega 64.
then entire reason I bought Vega and this monitor was for freesync. please help!

Confirmed it was amd freesync causing black crash its gone now that I turned it off on my Viewsonic XG2701. ;(
I had the same issue with Vega 64, DP 1.2a ACer XG270HU. IT is the displayport! change to HDMI 2.0 cable and the problem is gone! I had the issues with Prey and Far Cry 4. I really hope this solves both your issues.
Exact same issue. Rx Vega 56 and Acer XG270HU with DisplayPort.
Same issue, AMD fury X, acer xg270hu with display port, black screen while gaming looking like signal loss.
No issue when freesync is disabled.
Issue seem to be resolved (or not as bad) with 17.4.3 drivers
Yup same issue here, RX Vega 56 and samsung c24fg73.
Have this same issue. Intermittent black screens, loud popping noises from monitor, flicker/corruption. I've verified it's only related to DisplayPort and not HDMI. It's worse at higher refresh rates and higher memory clocks. I've not attempted to lock the memory clock to min or max yet. Tried multiple DP cables which marginally makes it better or worse. Freesync aggravates the issue.
Really frustrating since I forked out quite a bit of money to get 144hz Freesync.
Win 10. Latest crimson drivers as of this date (17.9.3). Sapphire R290 TRI-X OC on an Acer XF240H monitor.
EDIT: SOLVED. SEE REPLY BELOW.

I have solved (for now) the issue of black screening / flicker / artifacts with DP 1.2a and Freesync at 144 hz.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DOING THIS MAY DAMAGE YOUR MONITOR.
1) In Radeon Settings, go to Display > Specs > Override. Adjust Voltage Swing to '2'. (I believe this raises the voltage across the DP cable to the monitor which stabilizes signal for higher refresh speeds. I don't know this for sure.)
2) Back out to the Display menu again. Adjust Color Depth from whatever it is now, to a lower value, then back to the current / original value. This was an original workaround that greatly reduced the frequency of my blackscreens. In my case, I would adjust from 8 bpc to 6 bpc then back to 8 bpc. I don't know why this helped, but it did.
For now, the voltage swing adjustment has cured it for me.
Did this issue ever come back for you? I'm facing a very similar issues with a Nixus Edg 27 freesync monitor. I sent the monitor in for an RMA but they're not able to reproduce the issue so it seems like the issue is with my GPU. So hopefully when i get the monitor back and I can make the same adjustments you made and hopefully fix the issue.
I have the same monitor and same problem, but using 6bpc is basically halving monitoring color reproduction capability and yes it will use less bandwidth and solves the problem but you will lose so much color detail this way
have you found any other solution? did the voltage bump work for you?
I have the same problem.but different monitor . when I turn freesync off I have no problems but with freesync I have blackouts for a few seconds without any logs showing me any sign of failure (voltage , frequency ) . the games which this happens are only league of legends and csgo . World of tanks for example has never shown me a black screen , maybe due to the lower FPS
Hey i have the same issue(Black Screen for 2-3 secs, everything keeps running, is not a crash, also some brightness flickering, a common issue with freesync). Might be good to share our specs. Here are mine
Monitor: Viewsonic XG2730 using VESA DP
CPU: Ryzen 1700x 3.9ghz @ 1.2875
GPU: Sapphire VEGA 64 NITRO+ Slightly undervolted and latest bios, (Samsung mems)

I play mostly Guild Wars 1 and 2 and LoL.
- In LoL, with freesync active is common a black screen every 3-4h or sometimes 3 or 4 in 20 minutes...
- In Guild Wars 2 is not common, mostly because is bad optimized and doesnt go above 90 fps in a lot of scenarios, but it DOES happen
In Guild Wars 1 is much more noticeable, happens repeatedly every 20-30 mins 1 or more times, in this game i also have massive fps drop and stuttering, only in this game, will try a reinstall.
If i disable Freesync, Black Screens are gone, as far as i've tested.
Tried a lot of troubleshotting like: buying new VESA certified DP cable, fresh windows install, different drivers (always using ddu), changing cable voltage in radeon settings, changing gpu scaling... nothing worked. Only thing go ensure good 1440p 144fps STABLE gaming is TURNING FREESYNC OFF, which is absurd considering i only bought this monitor because of freesync. This also erase the brightness flickering which is a known freesync issue
My PC is really stable as it passed tons of benchs and stress tests for every component, so i dont think its hardware related.
Previous to this monitor (XG2730) i had a ver old 17 inches Belinea, capable of 75 hz. Never had a single black screen
Interesting thing about this new monitor is that appears as VIEWSONIC XG2730(HDMI2_2.0), so i went to update manual controllers and there i have options for HDMI 1.4 and DP but doesnt matter if i install any, monitor is still figuring as VIEWSONIC XG2730(HDMI2_2.0), i guess is not related but who knows.
wow this is exactly my problem , literally the same . The fixes you tried I also was afraid would fix it but now I'm glad that they I haven't done them as they were pointless as it seems.

Yeah in league of legends it's most of the time one black screen per ranked game (~30Min) , but sometimes I'm lucky and it doesn't appear at all one game. When freesync is turned off , the issue is gone 100% of the time . It's easy to test @amd , literally pick up one of these monitors and test league , I guess you will find someone who plays league for one or two ranked games to confirm the issue .
Radeon RX 580
LG 22M45HQ (HDMI 1.3)
HDMI cable (1.4 or 1.3 i guess)
This started with purple screens when laugthing some games. Then I have changed pixel format under 'Display' in Radeon Settings to '4:4:4 RGB PC Standard'...
